Last night I had the good fortune to walk among fortunes embroidered on childrens gowns. Some of the fortunes were quite striking evoking strong emotions – I laughed, was sad and found one I hoped would be mine. I’m not sure I remember them verbatim but here are a few I remember: You will be attracted to cruel women You
